Yes, Flanders, There is a Santa Claus is a The Simpsons Winter Wingding story first printed in The Simpsons Winter Wingding #3.
Reverend Lovejoy visits the Kwik-E-Mart and sees that the store is decorated for Christmas. At church, he decides to talk about how Christmas has lost its meaning. He asks the congregation what Christmas is all about, and no one mentions Jesus, so he concludes by saying that Santa Claus does not exist. Afterwards, Marge and Homer buy ice cream for the children to cheer them up, but Bart and Lisa say that they know the truth and Lisa says she is worried about Rod and Todd. They have removed everything to do with Christmas and other holidays. They are depressed because Christmas has disappeared for them, and Bart thinks they should bring Christmas back to them, to which Lisa agrees. On Christmas Eve, Lisa and Bart tell Rod and Todd that the adults do not know anything and that Santa Claus exists, and they should prove it. At midnight, Lisa wakes Rod and Todd and asks them to look out. On the roof of the Simpson house is a reindeer, which is actually Santa's Little Helper. They realize that Lisa and Bart told the truth, and they put out cookies for Santa. Rod and Todd go to bed again, and Bart and Lisa go into Flanders' house to eat the treats. Meanwhile, Snake, who has been stealing Christmas presents, breaks into the house (earlier they met Chief Wiggum, who told them about thefts in the neighborhood). Snake is dressed as Santa and Ned wakes up and tries to shoot "Santa", but Rod and Todd see what he is doing and ask him to not shoot Santa. Lisa sees everything and intervenes just before Ned tries to call the police. She talks about how Santa is a symbol of peace and joy, and she asks Ned to not take away the joy from his kids. Ned realizes he made the wrong decision, and asks Snake to give the stolen goods to Rod and Todd if he wants to go free. He does, and Rod and Todd get Lisa and Bart's presents because Snake has been in their house before, but they accept it because it can sometimes be better to give than to receive. Homer comes in and tells them that Christmas is ruined because someone stole his beer.
